Center Valley Offers the Lehigh Valley Full-Arch Dental Implants
Full-arch dental implants from the team at Center Valley Dental add stability to dentures.
Fixed (or non-removable)
There are two types of full-arch removable implants: an upper arch and a lower arch. For an upper arch implant, either four implants are placed with a ball over-denture, or six implants are placed with a bar over-denture. The four implants allow for some movement with the denture, but the six implants allow for no movement.
A full, lower arch denture is attached to implants meant to be removed by the patient daily. The number of implants for this procedure ranges from two to three to five. If patients choose to receive two or three implants, they will be placed with a ball over-denture. There will be increased retention with this denture and some movement. If patients choose to have five implants, the denture will be placed with a bar. There will be bone preservation in the entire arch, and their will be no movement of the denture.
"With so many options, we realize a patient can feel overwhelmed,"
